Towards the end of my pregnancy with SJ I had low levels of amniotic fluid—as known as oligohydramnios for all you medical types out there. But for those of you who are like, “huh?” when this happens it’s major because amniotic fluid fills the sac surrounding the fetus and it serves as a protective buffer. But more importantly, it protects against infection and allows the little one to move around. Doctors determine the levels by measuring the largest pockets of fluid. And without going too deep into details, a normal soon-to-be mom has about 5 and 25 centimeters—mine was 6. It wasn’t dangerously low, but if it got any lower, I was in the danger zone. That being said, I frantically drank as much water as I could. Morning, noon and night I was constantly drinking it down.
In fact now that SJ is 8 months, I’m STILL drinking water. But that all changed when I was introduced to Juice So Good.
They’re a small juice and coffee making company based in Minneapolis (yes, Minneapolis!) and it really is SO good. Each bottle of juice contains fresh vegetables and fruits and each milk 1/2 cup of protein packed raw nuts. The juice craze is nothing new, but Juice So Good honestly is one of my favorites. Take the sweet green juice for instance—it’s loaded with spinach, celery, green bell peppers, apples, pears and lemon. And it’s a sweet taste, but not in an overly sweet way.
Anywho, if you live in the midwest they have overnight delivery options or you could just pop by one of their stores. But if you live in the far west or east (like me) you have to visit your nearest Whole Foods or Target to get in on the action.
So check it out and let me know what you think. But be warned, you might become obsessed like me…
